State legislators have co-sponsored a bill that would allow firearms to be brought into, handled and played with by children at state day cares.
Proponents of the bill say that there were severals reasons the legislation makes sense. First, toddlers are citizens, too, and therefore covered by the Second Amendment. Second, the younger children are introduced to firearms, the sooner they can begin learning about firearm safety. And third, if a terrorist chooses to attack a day care center, lawmakers believe the children should be allowed to protect themselves.
It's unclear whether the bill, dubbed "No Child Left Unarmed," will pass sub-committee and be voted on by state lawmakers.
